According to the NWA’s twitter page;
This is big news people! Trevor Murdoch Vs Nick Aldis. We can now report that this match will be non-title which just might give the upper hand to Murdoch. The Champ, Mr Aldis, might just have bigger things on his mind and this could be a great opportunity for his opponent to cement his place in the National Wrestling Alliance.
Murdoch has the experience edge, being a 23 year veteran of the sport in comparison to Aldis and his 14 year career. However, let’s not forget ring rust may come into play and while Murdoch has had some good showings in the NWA his first bout was a loss to Ricky Starks which had to be a big upset for the returning veteran. Since then Murdoch has been dominant and dare I say looks better than ever.
Aldis on the other hand is the working champ, carrying the NWA World Heavyweight title from coast to coast defending it against contender after contender. Absolutely no ring rust here but the fact that it’s a non-title bout could come into play. As the champ, Aldis always has to have his mind heavily focused on his next defense of that belt. So will he come into the ring unprepared against Murdoch?
One thing is for certain, this is guaranteed to be one hell of a match the likes that this country hasn’t seen for many years. Both Aldis and Murdoch spent time in Harley Races Wrestling Academy where they honed their skills. Murdoch is obviously the more Race like contender with size and brute force to do his talking for him, Aldis on the other hand has shown that even though he can style and profile with the best of them, he’s no joke once the bell rings.
My guess is Murdoch comes out victorious in the end, his sheer size is enough to make him a formidable opponent to anyone in the ring and with the recent loss to Ricky Starks, more than likely still plaguing his mind, he will be ready for whatever the champ has to throw at him. No doubt this will be one match you won’t want to miss! Tune in at 6:05 ET on YouTube for NWA Power!
